I came to the Bay Area for an MBA at Stanford, and I'm now working here, but I grew up in, went to school in, last lived in, and miss, the Northeast! (Boston, Yale, NYC, respectively). People in California are happy all the time and that can be real stressful. It is fun to enjoy the outdoors more easily, though...

I try to learn important life lessons from my cat, Mittens, and my family golden retriever, Arlo. I'm a big fan of goats (and their cheese), but sadly was merely borrowing the goat pictured.

For an academic exploration of my thoughts about the intersection of politics and technology, browse my undergraduate thesis, “Hijacked Dreams: Technological Determinism and the Idea of Progress.” I promise you’ll learn something new!
